(Video) Tony Wroten breaks ankles, drops 53 in Pro-Am game

While I understand that statistically Tony Wroten was one of the least-efficient players in the entire NBA a season ago, I watched all 82 games, and I have a completely different view of Wroten than just someone who the Sixers are trotting out to help them suck.

Wroten isn’t a starter, and late-season attempts to try to pair him in the back-court with Michael Carter-Williams were a joke because neither of them can shoot, but he is the type of energy piece off the bench that could turn out to be scary. He is quick, can get to the hoop, and has an insane left-hand. If he can develop some sort of right-hand and improve his shooting over the next two or three seasons, he could be a very valuable sixth or seventh man.

His ability to score in bunches really intrigues me, and it was on full-display over the weekend as Wroten balled-out in a Seattle Pro-Am.


If that wasn’t enough, this ankle-breaker was pretty damn awesome.

Right hand, Tony, right hand.
